Surgery to Repair Hernia – patient information to assist informed consent

This RACS patient education pamphlet provides information on the surgical repair of hernia. The topics discussed include abdominal hernia, indirect inguinal hernia, what to expect before and after surgery, and the possible complications of surgery to repair hernia.

The different surgical procedures described are: laparotomy (open surgery), laparoscopic surgery and the Lichtenstein tension-free method. The surgical procedures discussed have accompanying anatomical illustrations to help increase the patients’ understanding of each surgery.

This leaflet can be a useful tool for patients considering undergoing hernia repair with the use of surgical mesh. The benefits, risks and limitations of surgical mesh are discussed in detail to assist the informed-consent process.

Mi-tec publishes 31 Royal Australasian College of Surgeons patient information brochures. The surgical repair of hernia is described in plain English to assist the patients’ understanding of health information and to help patients make informed decisions. The RACS patient information brochures are printed in five-colour on high-quality A4 sheets.
